Hi there from Manitoba

Hi there, my family and I are from Morden Manitoba. I work at Triple E/Leisure Travel Vans and we own an 84.5 Triple E class a in very rough shape. We love packing the kids in and finding some secluded spot and disappearing as often as we can. Generally we avoid campgrounds, too many other people and the cost more than just picking some secluded piece of bush.

We also have an 84 vw westy that is now for sale but we sure are going to miss it. But with 2 kids still in child seats how do you camp like that?

Our Triple E had the Chevrolet 454 yanked out years ago and a British Leland in line 6 and a 5spd standard put in and it went from 4mpg to 17mpg. Makes it fun to drive and as fuel efficient as some pickups.

so howdy everybody!!!

From the West Coast. Hear that Winnipeg, still has a snow pile to take care of out in your neck of the woods. Will they let you out there to start a snowball fight . Moving it around will help it melt faster. Nice way to cool off on a hot prairie afternoon.

That sounds like a bit of wild engine setup...

Safe and Happy Travels.
